The world's largest cryptocurrency exchange Binance is going to add crypto-fiat trading pairs – in two weeks support for the Russian ruble will be realized.
As part of his speech at the Open Innovations conference, which took place this Monday in Moscow, Changpeng Zhao, Binance CEO, noted that in about two weeks the company would begin to offer direct trading with the national currency of Russia. So, customers will have the opportunity to purchase cryptocurrencies on Binance.com using rubles.
The crypto community learned about these plans earlier this year. To date, Binance has managed to open several international crypto-fiat sites, in particular in the USA, Singapore, as well as in Uganda and Jersey. And last week, without preliminary announcements, the exchange added support for pairs with the pound sterling and the euro to its API.
In addition, recently Binance has been able to work out a plan to expand services that are designed to work with fiat deposits. For example, Binance entered into partnerships with TrustToken, Simplex, Paxos, and in early autumn, the company began to cooperate with London-based payment company Koinal.
